Asken Diet Launches in the United States with Meal Photo Analysis Technology

ORANGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Asken Diet, the app-based weight loss program with a built in digital
A.I. dietitian, has launched in the United States with a database
containing hundreds of thousands of foods and hundreds of national
restaurants and food brands. In an effort to provide Americans with the
most personal and comprehensive diet tracking information, Asken Diet is
bringing its extensive food database to the United States after a
successful launch in Canada late last year.

The app, which has over 1.5 million users worldwide, is unique because
of its built in artificial intelligence that provides nutritional advice
and diet insights uniquely tailored to each user. Our team of hundreds
of licensed nutritionists and dietitians have worked tirelessly to
create a database of nutritional advice that the Asken Diet app uses to
guide users throughout their diet. Members can continue to eat their
favorite foods while still losing weight and living healthier lives by
better understanding their diet. Asken Diet helps users more easily and
accurately track food, water and exercise; and it’s free to download at

Asken Diet has an easy-to-use barcode scanner that captures nutritional
information from a large database of nationwide foods after a quick
scan. The app also recently partnered with the Sony Network
Communications team to build our meal photo analysis technology. This
feature, currently in beta, allows users to snap a photo of their entire
meal (food and drinks) and easily log the meal with one photo. The app
will identify the items in the picture and users simply confirm the
items and log it all at once.

Asken Diet Premium service gives nutritional advice after each meal and
breakdown of their diet across 16 various nutrients. Free members get
daily advice after logging all three meals in a day.

Asken Diet is doctor-recommended and seamlessly integrates with popular
health and fitness apps and devices like Fitbit, Apple Health and Google
Fit. The Asken Diet experience gives users the ability to share data
through these connected services to help them achieve powerful,
personalized results.
